I had bought these jugs before and stored them on deck and found that they started cracking in the sun so I used snaps to make covers.I also went to the trouble of recessed bolts in the red oak so it would not dig into the plastic. I now have 100 gallons on board and with these jugs I can easily transport them in the dinghy and refill them at a gas station in places where there is no fuel dock.
Right now the weather looks good for me leaving for Bermuda on Wednesday. You can track my voyage at
on the internet.
